My personal Artix linux after-install setup guide

GNOME Night Light doesn't work on Artix

Mostly written for myself if I want to remember how to set up another install. Looking for an easy non-bloated Arch install? check out my RebornOS guide (Arch installer distro)

Guide is using the GNOME testing ISO

  1. Install Artix with desktop enviorment ISO
  2. The ISO installer has a dumb weak password restriction, change it to anything after installation with passw and sudo passw
  3. If using the GNOME-testing OpenRC ISO, remove phodav gnome-logs spice-gtk to prevent conflictions when upgrading the system
  4. Optionally remove *-extra packages. I.E. GNOME-extra, xfce4-goodies
  5. Uninstall Leafpad and Midori
  6. Upgrade system and reboot
  7. Enable AUR and AUR updates for pamac (aka Add/Remove Software) in the hamburger > preferences menu
  8. Install base-devel from AUR for building AUR packages
  9. Install archlinux-appstream-data-pamac for working categories in Pamac
  10. Install artix-archlinux-support for Arch packages
  11. Setup the Universe repo for more precompiled AUR packages (Librewolf) https://wiki.artixlinux.org/Main/Repositories
  12. Setup Chaotic-AUR for many precompiled AUR packages
  13. sudo gedit /etc/pacman.conf to edit pacman.conf
  14. Open Qt5 Configuration Tool and set style to Fusion, dark theme will turn to white on next launch of the tool
